Three Kings

I love Christmas pageants. Our L'Arche Edmonton pageant this week was a delight, with music, joy, and the excitement of the community surrounding a beautiful holy family embracing baby Jesus, whose pacifier saved the day.

In keeping with my theme this week of "giving with the original Christmas spirit," here's a lovely video made by the Cape Breton (Nova Scotia, Canada) L'Arche community, who performed an adapted version of Three Kings by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. I love the size differential between the three kings; the dance of the star; and King Herod's theme music, wa wa waaa. The performance of the carol, We Three Kings, is not to be missed... and the words of the final song brought tears to my eyes. Enjoy!
